Welcome Back & 2019 Supply List
Dear Eighth Grade Families and Students,
The end of August is fast approaching! We would like to take this opportunity to welcome you to Team Alchemy for your eighth grade year at ADL. We look forward to working together to make your final year at ADL a successful one. We have an exciting year ahead with many interesting topics for exploration, fun activities, and learning opportunities. We will continue to emphasize the Habits of Learning as we develop study skills, and our goal will be to have all students experience growth throughout the school year. Perseverance will be key in unlocking a successful learning experience! We will Be GOLD!! :)
We have been working hard over the summer to prepare for your arrival, and we look forward to seeing you on the first day of school.
